Our 2012 event has now taken place. If you would like to be added to our mailing list for details of 2013, please contact us.
Our fair is designed to help you to...
- promote your graduate opportunities and immediate vacancies to a large audience of final year undergraduate and postgraduate students;
- promote your internship and placement opportunities to students in earlier years of study;
- meet with students from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University;
- raise the profile of your organisation on campus.
Who will I meet?
You can expect to meet c1800 students and graduates who are currently studying for or are interested in an engineering, science or IT related career. Take a look at the courses that our students are studying and you'll see that you're in the right place to recruit - our students.
How is the Fair promoted?
Students and graduates from the two Sheffield institutions will make up the largest proportion of visitors, however the fair is open to students and graduates from all institutions, and we actively promote this event throughout the Yorkshire region - take a look at our publicity plan.
How much does a stand cost?
We review our employer provision every year to ensure that we are offering a cost-effective package that is full of added-extras – take a look at our stand prices page.
How do I book a stand?
Unfortunately this event is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please contact us.
Are there additional options for raising the profile of my organisation?
We've put together a selection of sponsorship and advertising opportunities to help you stand out - sponsorship and advertising page.
